their lives last week. across iraq. controversies francis it is imposing immigration quotas the debates began in the national assembly launched by prime minister and while phoebe. system based on jobs and skills is an option under consideration . thank you for being with us this tension along the turkey syria border after united states began to pull out its troops it clears the way for military action by turkey against the syrian kurds. turkey says t this is necessary t to enforce the safe zone with a ton of syrian refugees the syrian kurds have a different take on all of this they say they've been stabbed inin the back by donald trump. syririan kurds worked a alongsie us troops to defeat the i islamc stee group in northeast syria trump meanwhile tweeted that
3:32 pm
he'd obliterate. turkey's economy if it overstepped. there are lots of angles of this story will bring it in just a more to mark course in anchorage trying to sortrt it ot for us. just a good evening to you tell us about what is likely to happen when turkey. as we expect goes into syria. i expectct a ragining batattle. cd sisit thihis w weekend but theyl be a all out war you startrt freights. along the entire syrian turkikish bordeder. the s will find clark racks. a and they'v've got lots of battle experience frorom fighting againsnst the islamic state grououp. n now it's- turkey retaliateses excessively. if for instance it's applpl slacking. saw holdld town and therere are pictures in the news. then president trump could well carry out to stretch to destroy the turkish economy about t toms
3:33 pm
didndn't define what would be excessive you just said i if turkey doeoes anything i cononsr to be off limits no definition of off limits. so the turkish. armed forces for after with care. we are i in a different realalm of diplomacy now i'll be just a completely i'm i'm wondering how people in turkey might react to all of f this. well i think the n nationanalist parts of the population n i'm n. close to halt the popupulation. they wouould tend to susupport h an oraration they will l tend to believe president trump is sayingox okay all the halls of the population. how t they view what happenens depends very much on how the codes find back if the codes for instancee fire rockets into southern turkish towns killing and wounding stability. then the public at large will see the codes a as terrorists. and they will think
3:34 pm
the turkey's operation is legit. however thehe syrian kurds s cos find o out fine two million thre targets within syria. thenn as turkish soldiers come back in body bags people will question this operation. look at the border today it's been quiet for the past two years. and your rules will say what is the point of causing. mayhem when that was he spoke for. i'm just but the fact that donald trump has made this decision seemingly guard against advice from his defense stuff ms intelligence stuff from the pentagon from. he would name the whole list of possible vices and he's done all this from the strength it seems of a phone call with turkey's president what kind of influences to one. w weaving ovr the us. it does lolook that way but in fact other one does not pass o out over. and f from that
3:35 pm
socicial i think thihis hawks bk to president trump says wage so cold. amerirican soldiers back from overseas walls and it certainly goes back to prpresident trump's cage in december last year that he would withdraw all amemerican sosoldiers from syria now he didn't in fact do that. i hit his pledge prompted his defense secretary jim massess to resign it all wrong. a sort of our in house demons against him and he kept his american. soldiers in syria boxing. he's going back to his original pledge. and particularly with the elections coming out he wants to see it once american voters to say that he delivers on its promise. the calls for murder one you can play it the other way saying look at me a much yet strong decision on my own influence i suppose just want to leave that thank you very much indeed not. just double
3:36 pm
click. i'm sorry just to go ahead. well i'm certainly will be showing. will be presenting it as- an expression of his influence. and the gentleman that thank you very much indeed for that analysis just more about correspondent. in ankara what you'll developments on this story but the stroll the us troops under way. and was just as predicting and many others. a military operation imminent. from turkey into northeastern syria. lets me the latest on the impeachment car against us president donald trump congressional democrats have issued subpoenas to the pentagon and white house budget office they're seeking documents related to trump's decision to hold military assistance from ukraine. the house of representatives committees leading cari said the department of defense and the white office of management and budget must turn over the documents by october the fifteenth the allegation. is that trump threatened to withhold four hundred million

3:38 pm
that part of town. and replacing them with a police force now the interesting thing is that we appear to be getting mixed signals from the government on the specific matter because- earlier that day. the spokesperson of the ministry of interior held a press conference during whichch he saiaid that it is not the regular security forces were responsible for the violence against protesters but quote. malicious factions that have managed to infiltrate the security apparatus and a are shooting at both proteststers as well as s securityorces. so this realllly begs the queuestin whwho is inn control of the situation and is thahat your rocketet government once again strugglingng to rein in v varios armed factions that have destabilize the country. prime minister either love the mask the also announced a seventeen point recovery plan with which he aims to address the grievances of the protesters and this. includes f for example affordable housing it includes stipends to the unemployed as well as the payment of benefits to the families of protesters. who were killed during the demonstrations but what protesters have really been asking for is a complete

came late on sunday night telephone call with the tech is president recep tayyip erdogan. at donald trump it would appear overruling his top advisers. and there are many fee is that this could really leave the cuts extremely vulnerable in the- case of an invasion by turkish forces because it would leave them. at unaided by the us i'm this is one of the many at trump tweets that we have seen on the subject it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous. endless wars many of them tribal. i'll bring all soldiers home we will fight for it is to our benefit. and only fights to win so very much the idea that. america fast means the allies read i matter anymore. i am now four hours later on the heap of criticism lake city that he issued this tweet. if turkey does and the thing that only in my great aunt much wisdom consider to be off limits. i will totally destroy into bliss right the economy of turkey i've done before. i'm alarming tweet number of reasons that one. and
3:52 pm
it certainly seems to be a reaction to the fact that he is getting criticized. even by those who would ordinarily be backing him now the daily beast is that is fairly liberal in its. sponsor unsurprising they all critical. it's crazy syria me they say will wipe out america's allies a and set up a big isis come back that really is west case scenario is that. michael weiss in this article. has the white house statement which is slightly less bombastic than donald trump's at tweets read as if it were written by someone who wants absolutely nothing to do with ththe part of the world as messd up as the middle e east. and doesn't cat if the whole place burns to the ground very strong what's that. no because of course will key to add the collapse of the isis caliphates don't come very fond of saying that it was all down to the united states. but they remain very much the enemy of turkey and that is why they now looks so vulnerable. in the event of the u. s. pulling out an folks and friends normally can be counted on to be very pro anything thehe president trump has to sasay but even brian
3:53 pm
kikilmeade. i'll get with his fellow hosts head saying. what kind of message is thanks to the next ally that wants to side with this we did it on them they did all the work now we say good luck good luck surviving. disaster i'm he's not the only one that you might have expected to back donald trump at lindsey graham is a republican. a senator and he at his first reaction to the this news was it's a disaster in the making he then tweeted this by abandoning the cuts. we sent the most dangerous signal possible america as an unreliable ally and it's just a matter of time before we see china russia iran and north korea acting out in dangerous ways. i'm the one of the things that lindsey graham has done he's very much leading the charge on this. is cooling for ankara to at pataki to be suspended from nato should they actually invade syria we will have to wait and see what happens next and nikki haley. was the us ambassador to the u. n. she has also spoken out saying we must always have the
3:54 pm
box of all allies if we expect them to have all back neck the hashtag to you. turkey is not our friend now the other big question and it's a big question for france because there are a lot of foreign. isis fighters out back in syria we know. there are thousands of foreign fighters around four thousand being held prisoner. by the cuts what happens if the cuts fleet we. empty date night. now loads of french magazine. is also reporting on the front there so many wives and offspring. of f isis fightes outlet in syria. . klay nobody wants them but nobody wants to see a massacre and nobody wants to see them indiscriminately released only that sir a lot of concerns about what could happen. the repercussions of this could be indeed i'm watching for all the violence of course now france's intnto mr kristol castanets is facing criticism here even calls to resign. as more information comes to light about the man who killed for his colleagues at the paris police headquarters last weekend a telescope. yes chris of course
3:55 pm
that has only been in the job of interior minister for a year box he's faced quite a number of crises now some of them i think it's fair to say of his own making he does seem to. be a little bit guilty is putting his foot in his mouth as we like to say in the united kingdom i'm the pressure is very much mounting on him partly becausese of his past statements to be made after this attack happened. at the paris police headquarters for police officers stop to death and he immediately said that there was no sign of any problem with the killers behavior before it happened there was no i did he could have been radicalized. and was it inaccurate or was it deliberately misleading a lot of people asking thahat question right now is more more details come out abobout what we should and could have known earlier owned and limo reporting on this one. saying that this was a major failure of the state they talk about the fact that hehe said good job after the sht after attack he was and had they h had an informal chats
3:56 pm
within the police h. q. with him about that one. severeral of his colleagues that they noted signs of radicalization old and inform bessie perry's will talk to people w who are specialists in that area again nothing was done their action was taken. i am so a loss of questions really about crystal castaneda and his role as intererior minister heat that has been a kind of eras and he does admit that base that was signs that should have merited investigation. another thing that we've discovered today is that a u. s. b. he according. to the policy are. found in the attackers home actually. contained images of beheadings by isis. and also. how small chillingly information hustle ininformation regarding his colleagues. at we don't know whether it's the colleagues whoo ended up. beingng killed by him. i'm castaneda says he will not be resigning it does seem likeke the hashsh tag. a day missing custom that is that every week on twitter. basically resigned castaneda and what h he is going to do today is the number of attacks could have beenen
